Yes - Wembley Arena 1978

Possibly the most famous Yes unofficial recording, with an extraordinary sound and excellent performance.
This is not the full concert, some tracks were omitted by the BBC to shorten the program to two hours and I removed two other, (Don't Kill The Whale and I've Seen All Good People) since they were officially released.
